The Obstinate Gospel

Not everyone would naturally want to be considered obstinate, stubborn, unyielding, inflexible, unbending, intransigent, strong-willed, uncooperative, unmanageable, stiff-necked, rigid, uncompromising, unrelenting, immovable, unshakable...

Not necessarily the first words that come to mind when thinking about the reputation I'd like to leave behind in the world. I mean listen to this... "He was such a stubborn, uncooperative, obstinate fellow..." Really?

But there's something about these words that captivate me. They move me. They're filled with beauty and allure. A majestically masculine allure that speaks of grit and gusto... blood, sweat, tears, and everything that takes a man from total failure to an indescribably glorious victory. They speak of a prince with feet set, muscles bulging, and declaring with all the authority of heaven and earth "Here and no farther! Stand back you foul fiend!"

Ahhhhh... and so I wax dramatic. Alright, I may as well go ahead and admit it... this stuff runs in my blood. It fills me with glorious passion. This is the manly stuff of the gospel.

And when it comes down to it - I've decided that there is no greater honor than having the reputation of obstinacy. Immovability. Unshakablity.

At least when it comes to one thing...

Hmmm.... should I tell you? Naw... I'll let you listen for yourself (click the link below)
